Random Blog Finds #1 + Giveaway Alert

Hi everyone! Hope everyone is well. I’ve been stressed for a couple of weeks as mentioned on my previous post and I’d like to thank you all for the nice comments. I felt better after writing down my thoughts and reading your supportive words.

I’d like to blame my workload again for not having time to read and write but whenever I have time, I would always check WP. And because I am lucky enough to have a day off (tomorrow) after 21 days, I am writing this now and reading some of your posts.

While I cannot read everyone’s post, I try to read as much as I can and there are really good ones that I want to share. And because my blog would become chaotic if I reblog all the nice posts, I thought of creating “Random Blog Finds” post where I can insert the link of my favorite posts. I’m thinking of doing this weekly but I cannot commit so I’d rather do it randomly then – whenever I have time.

So here are my recent favorites and hope you can read them too when you have time as they are worth your while.

Ica’s post about the sunset is really positive and I was smiling the whole time I was reading it.

I like Vienna Noreen’s post on What It Means To Live, and please make sure to play the music before reading her wonderful piece. I also like the color of her blog, just looking at it makes me feel that I’m entering a cozy cafe with light music on. I can already smell the aroma of freshly brewed coffee just by looking at her blog.

I could never write anything as wonderful as Jolen did if I Missed Supper

Kaisa’s When Expectations Clash With Reality is a very honest post about her disappointments with tourist spots and if you travel a lot, you might be able to relate to her.

I am never into adventure and extreme activities but Jeff’s Cagayan de Oro Water Rafting post made me think about wanting to try water rafting.

I smiled while reading Amielle’s 21 Things I’ve Learned Before Turning 21 and asked myself what have I been pondering about when I was 21 and found out that it was Burger and French Fries!

About the Giveaway

Believe it or not, my blog is turning 5 years old on the 13th of August and I was like >> really? I never thought I would come this far nor would I have my own domain. I also never thought people might be interested in reading my posts but surprisingly, some of you do, like you are reading this post right now. I also can’t believe that some of you have been my blogger friends for years now and I am really grateful for e-meeting such nice people here.

On my next post I will be giving away a small token of appreciation and because I am not rich enough to give a gift to everyone (LOL), it will be some sort of a fun (hopefully its fun) giveaway with simple mechanics and there can only be one winner.

Please don’t expect that I’ll give a free stay in the Maldives (LOL), I’m not influential enough to get sponsors ha ha.

I hope you guys will join as this small token of appreciation is from the bottom of my heart and also from the bottom of my pocket (LOL). I’m quite nervous about this as maybe this won’t work but I’ll do this anyway. I got this idea from my blogger friend Mumi Meg of NocturnalMomTalks, therefore she will not be qualified to join this giveaway but she will help me choose the winner (sorry Mumi Meg).

Thanks for reading and please stay tuned!
